Sugar and Spice - A new baby girl in our family!!


We heard today that one of hubby's cousins had a baby girl today, so it didn't take much to send me up to my little craft room and make this card!  I knew I wanted to use this cute image from Mo's Digital pencil so checked out their current challenge, no 25, which is pastels and therefore great for a little girl card. I know this is called Michael but don't think it matters which sex this little cutie is really!!
 I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers, rotated to suit the image.  I coloured with Promarkers with a little Diamond Stickle for the wings.  The papers are Basic Grey Euphoria, and the butterfly paper is actually what the daffodils that my Nick bought me on Friday were wrapped in!!  I love daffs at Easter but I was almost more excited about the paper.  I  punched out one of the butterflies with my MS punch and layered it up on to another one punched in the dark pink matting paper to give it a bit of depth and added strength! I used  Nestie labels (can't remember which set!) to back the image, it mirrors the cloud that littl'un is lying on rather nicely, don't you think? Also had my sewing machine out again, as you can see, and flowers from stash. The beads on the silver elastic have been in my stash for ages and I think were meant to be for present wrapping.  Stamptacular challenge 53 wants Sugar and Spice, which all little girls are made of so I will be loading this up there too! 

Gosh, it's so nice not to be worrying about work tomorrow - yippee!!
